It’s 1990. There’s no web to surf. To purchase software, people have to drive to a store called “Egg Head”.
The NeXT Computer was used to invent the World Wide Web and the first App Store both. NeXT is responsible for the first online food delivery and the first search engine or WebCrawler.
In fact, the NeXT Computer brought together for the first time, the very same computer tools and technologies used to create your iPhone, and every one of the apps you use with it.
The NeXT was the 20th Century platform used to create the two software technologies billions use everyday here in the 21st Century – the combination of the web to publish content and the App Store to protect digital rights provided the foundation for the mobile computing revolution of today.
This one computer would become the most broadly influential innovation producer of the 20th Century, while gaining less than a sliver of marketshare. Today, for the very first time, the story of the digital revolution, history’s greatest computer and the technologies that engineers created which changed the world, is finally being told.
Please join us on this journey of passion and innovation!

Just signing up 😀
The documentation might have weighed more than the computer (although probably not more than the monitor). Did anybody weigh the doc set? 😉
Is that with our without the Developer Doc Set? Pesonally, I fondly remember seeing that entire cabinet shelf of white Developer Docs from left to right, with a few solid black and green/goldish framed older NeXT 2/3 series on many cabinets in building 2 with both trepidation and respect.
Steve forgot to thank Denis Ritchie who created U ix and C on which Next OS is based on 😉
